PK Mishra, chief tax assessment officer, Prayagraj Municipal Corporation, said, "Around two weeks ago, we had sent a house tax notice on Anand Bhawan, Swaraj Bhawan and Jawahar Planetarium. In reply, we have received a letter from N Balakrishnan, the administrative secretary of the Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial Fund in Delhi. The letter has been forwarded to the Zonal Office (four) with instructions to carry out a detailed survey and submit a report regarding the total pending dues. Further decision would be taken after receiving the report."
